Post-Katrina disaster response:  EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP) volunteers discuss post-Katrina recovery work and its comparison with the 9/11 New York City response

Description

This presentation provides a collective body of knowledge helpful for EMDR clinicians in understanding disaster response at sites both in post-Katrina operations in Louisiana and 911 operations in New York City. The presentation will include information learned by EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP) volunteers in establishing an on-site network for trauma recovery clinicians serving in Louisiana. Lessons learned include establishing initial onsite networks, noting key contact persons, and networking with local agencies in providing EMDR services. EMDR Consultation and the importance of daily debriefings of the clinical work will be discussed. Differences in protocols such as EMD, Recent Events Protocol, and EMDR, as they relate to the timing of the trauma will be outlined. The importance of practicing healthy self-care and avoiding burnout will be noted. A summation will include the similarities and differences between the EMDR community-based intervention project in New York City with responders and civilian following 9/11 and the post-Katrina HAP project with first responders in Louisiana.
